1. Have a dance party. With a little planning and spirit, any room can be transformed into a dance space. Turn on some tunes, get the family moving and raise the roof to ring in 2021. You could even turn off the lights and use glow sticks or LED light-up wands for added ambiance.
2. Set up a photo booth. Make it a night to remember by setting up a photo booth. Pick a corner, pull out old Halloween costumes or find some festive props, and let everyone get creative. The photos can be shared on your social channels to wish friends a happy new year.
3. Look through old photos or home movies. Take a trip down memory lane by looking through old photos or watching home movies. This is a great reminder of how far family members have come this past year.
4. Create a family time capsule. Ask each family member to write down their wishes and dreams for 2021. Then seal responses in a box or jar with other memorable items to open next New Year’s Eve.
5. Board games, anyone. Find a few games everyone can enjoy or host a tournament of your family favorites. Consider giving out prizes to keep everyone engaged.
6. Glam up everyday objects. Kids love sparkle! Add glitter to playdough or slime and let them play. Use number cookie cutters to spell out 2021.
7. DIY dessert bar. Create confetti-themed treats with pre-made cupcakes topped with frosting. Let everyone use a variety of toppings, like sprinkles, decorative icing, colorful Fruity Pebbles cereal or candy pieces, to make their own masterpiece.
8. Have a virtual hangout. Carve out some time and say hi to family and friends you haven’t been able to see. Get some face time with grandparents or others who might be isolated.
9. Watch a countdown. Nothing says New Year’s Eve like a good countdown. Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest airs live beginning at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
10. Make party favors. Pick up party favors at a local store or make them at home. There are plenty of tutorials online for party favors.
